about

First released as a 12" vinyl record by Alluvial Recordings (USA, defunct label runned by Kevin Wienke) in 2004.

Based on various field recordings, in-site and indoor improvisations with found objects and electronic devices. The last track contains a recording of the delicate songs of the cricket Eugryllodes pipiens.

Drawings by Wan-Shuen Tsai and photographs by Yannick Dauby.

The title of this album came from a walk in the Mediterranean Alps, it was stolen to guitarist Guy Reyes. Thanks to him, finally.

Review from Vital Weekly #429

" [...] On this LP he is strictly concerned with field recordings and hand manipulated sounds. Electronic sounds don't seem to be playing a big role on this record, save maybe for some equalization of sounds. Bird calls are being looped and wind chimes recorded out doors. This kind of music is usually dense, hence the fact that it's part of the drone world, but also acoustic sounding, with more open ended sounds. The minimal aspect, almost frozen like a picture, is of course always present in this kind of music. Now I come to think of it, the artwork of this LP (and other releases of this kind of music) contains usually close up of landscape elements and resemble the music quite well. Yannick Dauby succeeded in producing a more than excellent LP, which fit a small but strong tradition. " (FdW)
